Perform accurate measurements on any substrate: metal, semiconductor or glass | Free Spectroscopic Ellipsometry Workshop
For anyone that is performing coatings on glass, this workshop would be an ideal opportunity to gain an introduction to Spectroscopic Ellipsometry. J A Woollam’s patented technology allows accurate measurements on any substrate: metal, semiconductor, or glass. On transparent substrates, the alpha-SE® measures depolarisation to correct for light returning from the backside of the substrate. This unwanted light can confuse other ellipsometers, but the alpha-SE® ensures accurate optical constants. See alpha-SE in this video
Application engineers from J A Woollam will give talks on the following topics:
- Theory and Fundamentals of Spectroscopic Ellipsometry
- Applications and Data Analysis Examples of Spectroscopic Ellipsometry
- Overview of J A Woollam Ellipsometers including the alpha-SE Ellipsometer
There will also be a demonstration of the alpha-SE Ellipsometer and we can also do basic measurements on the day, so please do get in touch to get a sample submission form (any we can’t do on the day we will take away to do at the US factory).
This free of charge workshop is aimed at both experienced ellipsometry users as well as people new to ellipsometry. The format of the workshop includes an introduction, fundamentals of ellipsometric data analysis, and an overview of ellipsometric applications in both research and production. New emerging applications are highlighted.
The workshop will be held at the MTIF Research Centre at Nottingham Trent University on Monday 13 September 2021. It has been organised by Quantum Design who represent J A Woollam in the UK and Ireland. Quantum Design UK and Ireland is part of the Quantum Design International (QDI) group.
